Cthulhu idols, mythos relics, animal crossing fossils, helix fossils, and borderlands belt buckles IN STOCK!
Finishing up some big projects for clients and doing some thinking about the last year and on what I actually want to be doing come the new year.
Just throwing this out there to see if anyone might be interested... in a few months i might start selling cast resin teeth and claws, like for sfx creatures and costumes if people would want them. I was invited to a furry convention and even though I have a huge appreciation for the craftsmanship and work put into fursuits, i learned recently that they REALLY creep me out in person. Been interested in building a monster suit as a challenge and personal project for a long time and this seems like the kind of thing to start the suit for. And so i can blend in to observe this strange culture in relative comfort haha. Not entirely sure what I'm making yet but i ordered some suitably ratty and monstery looking fur during black friday. And to the point of the journal:
Whatever I make will have many large teeth and claws that will be cast in resin... and since i'll have molds it would only make sense to use them since the materials are costly. Would enyone be interested if i started to sell cast resin teeth, claws, and maybe full jawsets and head bases for making museum/sideshow creature gaffs, costumes, and fursuits? I want to experiment a little more with sewing and sculpting some non-mythos monsters and animal figures too. Since that's different enough from the other things I do I was wondering if I should open a secondary etsy shop for this kind of thing or just extend the range of my current store to include some borderline furry stuff? :/
And on that thought, I kind of feel like keeping this account more businesslike and serious... just posting my sculptures, stonework, and mythos art. I will of course continue making, casting, and selling Cthulhu idols, since I enjoy that very much. ..But I've found that making exact replica props is more frustration than fun and I want to work on more original sculpting and drawing as that is creatively fulfilling. And when it comes to making prop replicas, I thought it was what I wanted to be doing at first but I quickly learned that I'm just an out-of-touch old fart that's not interested in most of the big pop culture that people want props from... not much fun in replicating something outside of my interests just because it's popular. That doesn't mean i'll never build a prop again, but it's just not my main focus unless it's something I really want to make personally (like the borderlands stuff and fossils).
Considering using another account to document the monster build, drawings, sewing, 3d printing, and more lighthearted stuff. Any thoughts? I know it can be weird when someone you watch suddenly shifts gears and starts posting completely different stuff since I've seen that a few times and unwatched people because it just didn't interest me any more... so I feel like having a secondary with the really different experimental stuff is a good way to go.
